About the design

The Orrefors Sekskant (or Orrefors Hexagon Pendant) is designed by Carl Fagerlund and produced by Danish LYFA in collaboration with Swedish Orrefors in 1972. This is RARE set of 3 magnificent amber crystal glass lights!

The breathtaking Orrefors Sekskant is comprised of a dark amber hexagonal shaped outer shade, a small inner brass piece, a heavy clear crystal glass inner shade and a small brass piece on top of it all.

The dark amber, almost green outer shade colors the ambiance in a soft tone, whereas the clear inner shade with faceted ornamentation scatters the light in every direction – the result is a complete glare free light. The combination of the dark amber, almost green crystal glass, the thick heavy clear inner crystal glass and the brass pieces makes this pendant a timeless classic!

In the 1960s-70s LYFA engaged collaboration with Swedish Orrefors Glassworks and their designer Carl Fagerlund in producing a range of crystal glass lighting, among these was the Orrefors Sekskant.
